HERE'S ANOTHER in my spring leaf watch posts:
We're on our 3rd inch of rain today, so it's a rather gray, but green, day. The leaves have finally begun to arrive in force. Here's last week's photo for comparison, and though there's no blue sky today the greens are dramatic. The ferns along the retaining wall and ground cover over the slope of the hill have literally burst out of the ground and the trees have begun to throttle up leaf production.
By next week it should be almost summer. About time, too.
